Preferred Applications shows huge icons


Description Alistair Buxton 2018-04-27 12:40:11 CEST
Preferred Applications settings dialog is not scaling cons if they are the wrong size. This leads to it sometimes showing huge icons depending on the icon set in use.

Screenshot from Xubuntu 18.04, using the ubuntu-mono-light icon set (Adwaita and GNOME themes also reproduce) : https://launchpadlibrarian.net/367592323/exo.png

This seems to be a regression in the gtk3 port. A similar thing happened when gnome-panel was ported to gtk3: https://launchpadlibrarian.net/107130168/Screenshot%20from%202012-06-08%2006%3A44%3A22.png

Patch that scales the icons as expected

I added a patch that fixes the problem. If we want to change the icon size to something bigger, that's now easily possible too without breaking the scaling.
